Great tour of Chelsea Market & Meatpacking Area

This is our second tour with the Foods of New York Tours company. We took the Greenwich Tour a year ago and enjoyed it immensely. My husband was a bit skeptical of whether the tour was something he would enjoy. It turned out he thoroughly enjoyed it. So this time around we took our 27 year old son who just graduated from NYU and wondered how he would like it. He also enjoyed it. He wasn't sure about the 3 hour part--but, the tour keeps a great pace and you don't realize the 3 hours have passed. I am from Seattle, Washington and I have recommended this tour to everyone I know that is going to be in the New York area. I have received only great responses back.

Don't Miss the Chelsea Market

Chelsea Market Concourse is wonderful place to visit to experience an interesting aspect of New York. Get a look at the behind-the-scenes of food-centered businesses that are at the heart of the food industry.The walking tour's many sights, sounds, smells and tastes are there for all to enjoy. Tour Guide Bob's knowledge and insights were key to the pleasure we enjoyed on the food tasting tour. His presentation and manner made the tour educational, fun and especially worthwhile. The tour was at pace that was well suited for the concourse and offered a chance to get answers and to spend time observing and learning. This is a wonderful tour that is not to be missed by visitors to New York.

Everyone in our group (8) enjoyed this tour. We have been on all of the Foods of New York tours and have enjoyed every one of them. Because the weather was a little unpredictable when we went, it really didn't matter because most of this tour is inside. (something worth considering during the winter or in the heat of the summer) Our tour guide, Darryl, was excellent! He was very enthusiastic and related well to the group. He was a lot of fun and really seemed to enjoy what he was doing. Especially enjoyable on this tour was the walk along the High Line to get to the last stop on the tour which is a restaurant in the Meatpacking District. The food samplings are adequate (though I think the samplings on the Greenwich Village tours are a little more substantial) These tours are a great way to spend a couple of hours learning about the food, history and architecture of different parts of the city.

I enjoyed each and every stop on the tour and the information our guide gave us. My one critique and critique of our group was starting the tour with the cupcakes and sweets. That should have been last.

I think the tour could have been done by anybody but what made it so fabulous was our guide, Curt. From the minute he met us all, he knew our names and addressed us personally as he was giving the tour. He is an asset that is golden. The energy that comes from him is catching. What a gem!

A Great Tour

The three hours flew by. Kurt was instrumental in making this an outstanding tour. He filled the three hours with so much information and humor. He added a personal touch of knowing all our names when speaking to us. There was so much history and information about the Chelsea Market area that was fascinating. And, ofcourse, the food samplling was delicious and so much more than I expected. I would highly recommend this tour.

We loved this tour. Kurt is a terrific tour guide-- knowlegable about food, local history and culture, and with a great sense of humor. We are vegetarian and he made sure we had something good to eat when everyone else had a meat dish. This tour gets our highest recommendation.
